There’s always been a beauty debate about high-end products vs. drugstore products. Yes, some department store brands carry better lipstick than those you find at Rite Aid, but I’ve found many exceptions to this rule. One of my favorite money-saving techniques when buying makeup is finding “dupes” of high-end brands at my local drugstore.
As a whole, Clinique is one of my favorite department store brands of products. I highly recommend any of their skincare products since they are very gentle, and they seem to have a product for just about any type of skin. With that being said, sometimes I can’t afford to shell out $36 for a powder or $16 for those 3 lipstick shades I convince myself that I “need”. So, I’ve rounded up a few drugstore products that are a cheaper alternative to a similar Clinique product.
Have you tried any of these products to see which one works better?
